George Washington Culbreth-Georgia

Journal by Buddy_Culbreth

I am stuck on trying to find the parents of George Washington Culbreth (my grandfather). He was born in 1857-1858. All of the census data shows Georgia as his birthplace. I first find him im the 1880 census in Dodge County Georgia.
My sister told me that he was one of seven children and that was all she knew. A distant cousin(we think) told me she thought he was born in North Carolina, because his brother, her great grandfather, was born in North Carolina.
I found a GWC, born in NC in 1857, who was one of seven children. I thought I had found my connection. He was listed in the 1860 and 1870 census in NC. Then I connected with someone from that family whose aunt had written a family history which does not include my grandfater. There is another George listed, born a year later and with a different middle name.
Then I got an email from a lady who told me that was the wrong connection and got me looking in Georgia again.

This is driving me nuts!

Buddy, if you are still checking this site for posts Here is one for You!

My wife was born a Culbreth. She has several cousins, several 2nd cousins and her Dad is still living. ALL of these people were born in NC... Just because you have one person who gives you info that says your Grandfather couldn't be from NC doesn't mean a thing. Here is why: 1. The person may be wrong, 2. There were likely more than One Family-Culbreth with a George in it. 3. Not every copy of Family History is 100% so the middle name may not be right (Yours probably is/but Hers might not be. Go to a website for Culbreth DNA... Get a DNA sample from a known lineal male Culbreth in your line. Get all the names of Culbreths in NC you can find and look up their Phone # CALL them. Make sure you have all your facts as straight as you can // and// Have them written down to be able to refer to when speaking with Your Maybe Relatives. If you need a few names and telephone numbers to start you off contact me via this web site. Best regards, John Barker
